Those pesky Serie A winning boys are in town and all fired up for a teatime friendly* against the greatest football team the world has ever seen.

I want to stand firm on my ‘friendlies don’t really count’ stance, this is really going to test one’s common sense. Technically our first game at our new home away from home and it would be good to set the tone.

This will not be achieved with swathes of empty seats, witnessing a poor performance.

The pricing for this game has been reduced, but not by much and it’s still far too expensive for a friendly.

That said, THFC were not interested in looking after fans for the forthcoming league games and so why would this be any exception? With the opportunity to pack in nearly 3 times as many supporters as The Lane, it would have made sense to opt for a ‘pile ’em high sell ’em cheap’ strategy. Alas no. Instead the mission has been to generate as much cash a humanly possible.

Just who is doing Spurs’ public relations, Rose West? Wembley Fatigue® will hit the fans much quicker that it will any of the player’s calf muscles. People tend to vote with their feet.

This game would have been a great opportunity for a marketing stunt. £20 for humans, free tickets for the kiddiwinks and some nice giveaways; autographed football balls kicked out to fans, some of those American style t-shirt bazookas launching free merchandise at the great unwashed, players signing stuff and generally being genial. A moving in ceremony, if you will.

Instead engendering good-will, we have THFC mumbling about it not being their fault.

We’ve no balloons due to health and safety concerns and a copy of our plausible deniability statement can be found on the website.

    Can’t believe Sissoko is playing – I understand it puts him in the shop window but sod’s law he gets injured and we’re stuck with him for longer

    “Season ticket holders with 160 or more loyalty points who applied by the deadline have been successful and will be issued with a match ticket. Please note that this does mean that only One Hotspur members who renewed their season tickets at Wembley Stadium have been successful. Those supporters who have upgraded from One Hotspur Bronze to a season ticket during this year’s renewal period have not been successful.”

    Fuck you THFC!

    It’s almost as if they run everything past a Belligerence Officer to double check that there is no good will in any of the club’s output.

    • 61SpursNut🌰 August 5, 2017 at 4:10 pm

      They sent an email saying I got a ticket only to send another three minutes later with a “correction”.

      • Harry Hotspur August 5, 2017 at 4:41 pm

        Mmmmn. That’s charmless, even by their standards.

        • Caspurs♿️ August 5, 2017 at 4:48 pm

          Denial has managed to wreck all the good feeling built up over the last two seasons good performances, in the space of two months. The cunts inability to see us as fans, choosing only to view us as faceless ATM’s has diminished any goodwill he may have garnered in recent times.
          How the fuck can you renew when you have already paid up for the next years? UNFAKINBELIEVABLE!!

      • SpurAndy 🍒π August 5, 2017 at 5:01 pm

        That’s shameful, just because you didn’t renew in their proper manner. Gotta be worth a phone call to see if a human being can sort it out.

    • Caspurs♿️ August 5, 2017 at 4:07 pm

      I thought you had more than 160 points? Or is this a general f*ck you?

      • 61SpursNut🌰 August 5, 2017 at 4:09 pm

        I have 367 points but as I didn’t “renew” my season ticket but merely got a “new” one my 2.5 times more loyal patronage is thrown back in my face with a big FUCK YOU!

        • Caspurs♿️ August 5, 2017 at 4:38 pm

          That’s a fucking disgrace, especially as you and others have essentially invested your money in Spurs, and helped that cunt Daniel out with some much needed revenue.
          DANIEL YOU FUCKFACE WANKER!!!!!

    At this point it may be worth pointing out that my season ticket block (138) they were asking £45 for a seat compared to £40 per prem game, after their rethink on pricing this came down to £45 which i thought was very generous of them, so i thought POKE IT YOU *UNTS, gonna stream it with you guys!

    • Caspurs♿️ August 5, 2017 at 3:57 pm

      Sometimes you can’t beat a nice stream..

    The more you see of this band of thieves the more you delve into the state of your mental health and wonder if your crazy supporting them.

      He he he it’s like you were slipped some Rohypnol but instead of waking up having been buggered once, you married the buggerer and are getting it every night ☺️

        I wish we were playing Southend-on-sea United…but not sure if we are ready….

  • is Gascoigne gonna have a crack? August 5, 2017 at 2:49 pm

    Good god the BBC are a bunch of elitist C#%&@…… Its only the prem that isn’t on today, everything else and they just ain’t botheredbwith the red button viddyprint or even final score. No football exists outside schudamores circus nightmare. Fuck em.

  • Russ August 5, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    H should be pr executive . It definitely should be a welcome party atmosphere . A trick missed for sure 👍

  • Lilywhite without the II August 5, 2017 at 2:30 pm

    Perfectly put H, would’ve been a great gesture to welcome our fans to our new home, one for kids but alas the coke and popcorn will retail at £12.50 and the players will run to put their headsets on faster than Levy cashing in Walker’s check…

    • Harry Hotspur August 5, 2017 at 2:53 pm

      All the stuff I suggested is incredibly cheap to offer and makes people smile. And they wonder why they get called nasty names.
